SUSTAINABILITY AS POTENTIAL
Futureperfect produces inspiring conversations in key themes of sustainability, for diverse audiences, using experiential formats that integrate music, food, nature, and creativity.
The goal of Futureperfect is to make people much more engaged in sustainable living, professionally and personally, by showcasing its tremendous potential for enterprise, social development and personal wellbeing.
FOR INDIVIDUALS AND ORGANISATIONS
For individuals who are looking for way to discover and participate in sustainable living and the issues around it, Futureperfect events and community is a creative, welcoming exploration space that puts positive examples and rich experience at the centre.
For organisations and enterprises looking to develop opportunities in and through sustainability – leading their sector in this area, or catching up to best practice – Futureperfect is a learning, networking and innovation space ready offering highest-value content.
SHOWCASE OF GREAT STUFF
The main focus of Futureperfect is creating activities that showcase the great stuff already happening within real sustainable living.
Futureperfect offers explorations – through events like the Futureperfect festivals – of the amazing work going on, and the amazing people involved.
CULTURE & CREATIVITY
Futureperfect believes that emotional experience and development, based on sound knowledge, is the best way to unlock motivation towards sustainable living.
Therefore quality experiences – within culture including music, art, performance, personal development – and developmental, creative contexts for engaging, are essential to Futureperfect activities.

Forums and Dialogues – working from larger group discussions, to hands-on learning for small expert groups.
Music & Arts program is not about using culture to send ‘messages’, instead to create a social and emotional environment that supports inspiration and engagement.
Living Well program is about personal and social wellbeing beyond consumerism – including yoga, healthy food, nature, and development of psychological and relationship capacities – with a focus on experientially rich Workhops.
CoCreation program involves interactive Seminars and flowing, open discussions, and facilitated experiences, using techniques such a world café, open space, and similar.
